Praise for Joel McMains: Manstopper!: Training a Canine Guardian

"I could not put the book down. McMains describes the dogs' instincts and drives as they pertain to training and behavior." —Dog Fancy, Connie Jankowski

"While reading his descriptions of why a dog does what he does, there were several times when I felt like smacking my forehead as the light bulb went on." —Good Dog!

"The author's keen love and kindness towards dogs comes through on every page...offers a deeper understanding of how dogs think and learn." —K9 Capers Advanced Obedience: Easier Than You Think

"McMains' emphasis is on training...for the dogs' well-being and enhancing the human...dog bond.... Like all the best training books, Advanced Obedience informs readers about their dogs." —Dog World, Donald McCaig Kennels and Kenneling

"First rate. McMains' book fascinates me. His anecdotes are wonderful." —Dog World, Donald McCaig.

A Howell Dog Book of Distinction

Synopsis:

This very thorough book on training a protection dog builds from understanding protection work to training, being an agitator, evaluating temperament, and more. Safety is emphasized throughout. It is fun, exciting, compelling reading, even if protection work is not a goal but simply a fascination.
